Don’t Pull An Angelina: 20 Things You Should Never Do Without Consulting Your Significant Other

Earlier today, we shared with you OK! magazine’s report that Angelina Jolie is adopting a seventh child, this time from Syria. Behind Brad Pitt’s back. The story has yet to be confirmed and it sounds kinda far-fetched to me, but if it does turn out to be true, it’s interesting for two reasons. First, why does Angelina think she needs to adopt the whole world? And second, adopting a kid is something you absolutely, 100 percent completely need to have your spouse’s approval on before you go and do it. Similarly, on last night’s episode of “The Hills,” Spencer went to go get a vasectomy without telling Heidi. Luckily (or unluckily), he got scared off when the doc explained the procedure.

Here are 20 things you should discuss with your partner first.

  1. Getting your tubes tied
  2. Going off the pill
  3. Seeing other people
  4. Investing your joint savings in a combination fried chicken and sushi restaurant
  5. Erasing everything off the DVR
  6. Buying a house or new car, especially if it’s a Hummer
  7. Telling people you are engaged or pregnant
  8. Quitting your job
  9. Adopting a puppy/kitten/ferret
  10. Signing up for a shared credit card or bank account
  11. Throwing out all the boxes of frozen Girl Scout cookies in the freezer
  12. Moving the furniture around in the bedroom, especially if your significant other is blind
  13. Erasing everything on your computer’s desktop
  14. Selling drugs out of your apartment
  15. Getting their name tattooed on you
  16. Hanging out with the ex you still pine over
  17. Donating all your stuff to charity
  18. Joining the Church of Scientology
  19. Agreeing to go on vacation with your parents
  20. Moving to a different city
